    Glad the exit door is chained lock shut

    So no one carries out the drill press

    Each time I visit this blog I am more impressed with how useful and informative it is. I think this is probably the best resource on hardware out there. What an awesome job Lori has done connecting an “old world” industry to social media.
    Lori – any plans to start delving into the intricacies of access control etc?

      Thanks Aditya! Since this is my “night job,” the positive feedback keeps me going on the nights when I’d rather just watch a few hours of reality TV. 😉

      I’ve done a lot of posts about electrified hardware (you can see them by clicking the Index tab at the top and then “electrified hardware”), but let me know if there are topics specific to access control that you’d like to see covered. Maybe you can even be a guest blogger!

    This is a great picture of a WW II horizontal milling machine that is in the path of egress in front of the chained exit door and the final violation is the old door blocking the path of egress around the machine. I will use this picture in my class.

    You’re very welcome, Lori. I have many more images like this, collected over the years, illustrating how people circumvent the safety features of buildings (such as fire doors). I’ll be sure to send them to you!
